The live announcement for 19.1 of the CrossFit Open will be different. Last week we were given details that there would be live announcements from three locations around the world to kick off the Open – United Kingdom, Brazil and France.
As expected, the three CrossFit Sanctionals will be hosting these announcements.
United Kingdom: CrossFit Strength In Depth
Brazil: Brazil CrossFit Championship
France: CrossFit French Throwdown
CrossFit Strength In Depth will be hosting their live announcement from Royal Docks CrossFit, the 10,000 CrossFit affiliate. In their Instagram post, the organizers are asking fans who they would like to see go head-to-head.
Not only is CrossFit Strength In Depth hosting the live announcement, they are kicking of their Sanctional two days later on Saturday. To top things off, Event 1 is 19.1!
Down in Brazil, the organizers of the Brazil CrossFit Championship are opening up the announcement of 19.1 to its fans. Those who would like a chance to play Dave Castro from Brazil have to post a video on Instagram of them announcing their version of 19.1. The winner will share the real Open workout live from Sao Paulo, Brazil.
And in France, the CrossFit French Throwdown is also opening up the announcement to a fan. Just like Brazil, French speakers have been asked to share their best 19.1 announcement on Instagram. The winner will announce 19.1 live from CrossFit Castelnau le Lez, the oldest CrossFit affiliate in France.
We are just one week (7 DAYS!) away from the start of the 2019 CrossFit Open. Stay tuned to The Barbell Spin for updates.
